SOLD!!! Michael Greenfield G-1 Cutaway Steel String Guitar Brazilian, 2002

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

The Greenfield G-1 is a very responsive guitar, quick to react to even the lightest touch and lends itself to many different styles of music. It has a very focused yet open sound with a tight responsive bass, transparent mids and thick, clear, ringing highs. Primarily intended as a fingerstyle guitar, it is also superb for light strumming or acoustic jazz.

Michael Greenfield has been involved in playing, repairing and restoring quality instruments around Montreal, Quebec since the late 1970s. Towards the late 1990s he began to focus on building, and his work is innovative and exceptional. He uses top quality materials with a clear, deliberate purpose and his guitars deliver on that purpose.

This Greenfield G-1 cutaway dates to 2002 and features a Sitka Spruce top and a beautiful Brazilian Rosewood set for the back, sides and headplate. The neck is Mahogany, with Ebony for the bound fingerboard and the bridge. The roseette is Spalted Maple bounded by Abalone rings, and a thin clear plastic tap plate protects the top from fingernails. A K&K Trinity pickup system is installed.

As an hint of Greenfield’s skill, the lower bass bout features a Laskin Arm Rest, a bevelled section added to the edge and improving comfort for the player’s right forearm. Developed by celebrated Canadian luthier William Laskin (as the name suggests), the compound curves make this a deceptive addition – it looks simple, but it’s not.

This fine guitar has recently been serviced in our shop and has had a neck reset, fret dress and setup. It plays very well, and has a full, rich sound. The original white Calton case is included.
